Microsoft is bringing a powerful new feature to the modern Paint 3D app in Windows 10. Built for 3D content creation, Paint 3D had a whole bunch of 3D-focus editing features from the initial launch. But a new, Free View mode is about to take these editing features to a whole new level.
Paint 3D’s free view already allowed users to move around their 3D world or objects using touch or a mouse, viewing their creation from different perspectives. But editing an object would automatically take you to the regular view, where it can be quite difficult to remember the position of a certain object in the 3D world when you go back to the regular view. The new Free View mode (spotted by WalkingCat), however, lets you edit objects and add things to your 3D world from any angle you want.
As you move around your 3D world, the selection feature for resizing objects or changing the angles will also follow you around, so you can work on your 3D creation from literally any angle without having to worry much about how it ends up looking in the actual 3D world.
It’s pretty amazing:
Paint 3D is slowly turning out to be one powerful app in Windows 10. The app’s Magic Select is another feature that’s mind-blowingly accurate sometimes. The new Free View mode is yet to be officially announced by Microsoft, and it’s not clear when the app will make it to all Windows 10 users.
